100 Ghosts: A Gallery of Harmless Haunts

Ghosts, like humans, come in all shapes and sizes. You may never know if you’re staring at one, dead in the face, until you read this book.

100 Ghosts: A Gallery of Harmless Haunts attempts to take a hauntingly funny look at each type of ghost, to better inform the general population.

Written by stand-up comedian Doogie Horner, 100 Ghosts is a quick-read coffee-table book that arrives at bookstores just in time for Halloween — the perfect opportunity to use this new-found information!

There are many types of ghosts from many different genres on display, in this collection. Many pop-culture references are mixed with the classic archetypes. My favorites include: the Haunted Chinos, Pac-Man, Homemade, Steampunk and The Fantastic Four.

The art on display is simplistic, cute and full of Geek Culture. As Mr. Horner is also a writer and a designer, I assume he perfected each illustration in this book.

My only complaints are minor ones, as the forward is very funny, but random. I would have preferred something a little more topical about the book, instead. Also, I wish the book was longer! I need more ghostly differentiation!

I hope there’s more spooky books in Mr. Horner’s foreseeable future.

Strength: Cute, simple and funny illustrations.
Weakness: Short and sweet. It could have been longer.
WTF Moment: A Dead Ghost. Too funny!

Review: 4/5
